Hello to all. A Polish friend (female) said this to me today and I have no clue what it means since I do not know Polish. The word is: papatki


Can anyone help me out? It would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Dan

    And if you're interested:

    Papatki came from papa which is one of the very first things that little babies are taught in Poland. For example when a little baby is left by his mom with a grandma (who is the most popular and free babysitter in Poland :) ), grandma might say: Zrób mamie papa! And a baby waves to his mother.

    Or indeed?
    It originates from pa. The form given by slowik is indeed very often seen, especially in chats but correctly it should spell pa, pa. Strictly speaking papa has different meanings. ;)
